Bending of Light by Gravity

Abstract

To this point we have examined how massive objects move under the influence of gravity. Einstein taught us that light’s motion is affected by gravity as well. Despite being relativistic, gravitational light bending can be studied with a quasi-Newtonian framework to obtain a new way to probe mass in the universe.
